1. De Pozzio, Carla Mariesol. El TLCAN: y su representación en el femicidio de Ciudad Juárez.

Degree: MA, Spanish, 2010, Bowling Green State University

This thesis investigates the representation of NAFTA in two documentaries and two films about violence against women in Ciudad Juárez. Chapter I outlines Mexico's adoption of neoliberal economic policies that culminated in NAFTA, and then specifies individual clauses in the NAFTA text that illustrates the promises and expectations that accompanied the signing of the free trade agreement. These clauses are: Chapter 7 on Agriculture, Chapter 11 on Inversion, and the additional agreements on labor and the environment. The main analysis then, evaluates two documentaries and two Hollywood-type feature movies. Chapter II analyzes Lourdes Portillo's Señorita extraviada (2001), and Steev Hise's On the Edge: Femicide in Ciudad Juárez (2006). Señorita extraviada, was selected because it was the first documentary that brought to light and investigated the problem of the women's murders in Ciudad Juárez, trying to identify the real culprits. On the Edge, was chosen because director Hise's main focus was to evaluate all the different components that originated and exacerbated the problem of the femicide in Ciudad Juárez. Both documentaries represent NAFTA as an explicit or implicit factor that is associated with the femicide murders. Chapter III analyzes Bordertown (2006) from director Gregory Nava starring Jennifer López, and El traspatio/Backyard (2009) from director Carlos Carrera staring Ana de la Reguera. Bordertown is an American production, while El traspatio is a Mexican production. Both films portray women going to Ciudad Juárez, either to help solve the problems of the femicide, or to work in maquilas where they become victims of violence. They both implicate the implementation of NAFTA as having a profound impact on the Mexican agricultural sector, causing job losses, massive rural migration, particularly of women, to the border mainly to Ciudad Juárez. They also associate the work in the maquiladoras, which is implicitly related to NAFTA, as causing social changes including traditional gender role inversion, and gender antagonism because of the maquilas' preference of hiring female workers. This analysis thus focuses on how NAFTA is represented as generating political, economic and cultural conditions in which the maquila workers are prone to attacks and violence that ultimately led to femicide. Advisors/Committee Members: Robinson, Amy (Advisor).
